The San Francisco Dungeon is a 60-minute journey through San Francisco's past from the Gold Rush to Alcatraz. You and your companions walk through the Dungeon, moving from show to show, guided by our professional actors.
The shows are based on real San Francisco history and legends (minus the boring parts). You'll get up close and personal with sinister characters including Sam Roberts, the leader of the Gangs of San Francisco, and the infamous bar owner and crimper Miss Piggott and her partner-in-crime (literally), Shanghai Kelly.
It's a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, special effects, and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you'll pass through the narrow streets of San Francisco's Chinatown, Sutter's Mill, scene of the start of the 1849 Gold Rush, the fearsome torture chamber... and see (and feel!) what your life would have been like if you had been sent to Alcatraz. Believe us, it's better than a sightseeing tour of the city!
